1.1.3 Chemical and physical properties of the pure substance, with a sweet ethereal odour. Expand
Relationships between benzo(a)pyrene-DNA adduct levels and genotoxic effects in mammalian cells.
TLDR
To compare biological end points of diverse frequencies in diverse biological systems, a doubling adduct level, expressed as the number of BPDE I-dGuo adducts per unit of DNA required to double the induced frequency of biological response, was applied to the data. Expand
Standardized cell sources and recommendations for good cell culture practices in genotoxicity testing.
TLDR
This publication describes how the four 'IVGT' cell lines, i.e. L5178Y TK+/- 3.7.2C, TK6, CHO-WBL and CHL/IU, were prepared for deposit at the ECACC and JCRB cell banks and recommendations for handling these cell lines and monitoring their characteristics are described. Expand

In Vitro Mammalian Cell Mutation Assays
TLDR
Various aspects of regulatory guidance for the use of in vitro mammalian cell mutation assays and their role in genetic toxicity evaluation of pharmaceuticals are discussed. Expand
Iodomethane human health risk characterization
TLDR
Data demonstrated that humans are less sensitive to the effect that causes developmental toxicity in rabbits and the PBPK model incorporated this information, resulting in a higher HEC for the developmental endpoint than for the nasal endpoint, which is the primary endpoint for risk assessment of acute exposure to iodomethane. Expand
Detailed review of transgenic rodent mutation assays.
TLDR
This document provides a comprehensive review of the TGR mutation assay literature and assesses the potential use of these assays in a regulatory context. Expand
Screening for Chemical Mutagens Using the Mouse Lymphoma Assay
TLDR
This chapter provides the details for the conduct of both the agar and microwell versions of the mouse lymphoma assay and provides a summary of the recommendations of an expert MLA Workgroup of the International Workshop for Genotoxicity Testing (IWGT). Expand
Mutant frequency and mutational spectra in the Tk and Hprt genes of N‐ethyl‐N‐nitrosourea‐treated mouse lymphoma cells †
TLDR
ENU produces a chemical‐specific point mutational profile in the Tk gene of mouse lymphoma cells that is remarkably similar to that found in the X‐linked Hprt gene, providing evidence that the MLA can be used not only to detect point mutagens but also for analysis of mutational spectra. Expand

Cytogenetic analysis of the L5178Y/TK+/− → TK−/− mouse lymphoma mutagenesis assay system
TLDR
It seems likely that λ and σ mutants result from 2 different mutational mechanisms that may be distinguished on the basis of mutant colony morphology, possibly related to the type of chromosomal damage sustained. Expand
The utilization of trifluorothymidine (TFT) to select for thymidine kinase-deficient (TK-/-) mutants from L5178Y/TK+/- mouse lymphoma cells.
TLDR
Reconstruction analyses of effective TK-/- mutant recovery indicate that TFT can be used to recover mutants from significantly higher densities of TK+/- cells than can BUdR. Expand
Phenotypic expression time of mutagen-induced 6-thioguanine resistance in Chinese hamster ovary cells (CHO/HGPRT system).
TLDR
The phenotypic expression time, that is, the time interval after mutagen treatment which is necessary befor all mutant cells are able to express the TG-resistant phenotype, has been found to be 7–9 days in this CHO/HGPRT system when the cells are subcultured every 48 h. Expand
Validation and characterization of the L5178Y/TK+/- mouse lymphoma mutagen assay system.
TLDR
Characterization of the TK-/- mutants suggests that two mutagenic mechanisms contribute to their final yield, and is consistent with the induction of slow-growing specific locus mutants by a chromosomal mechanism and their subsequent dilution during this long expression time. Expand
Do radiation-induced thioguanine-resistant mutants of cultured mammalian cells arise by HGPRT gene mutation or X-chromosome rearrangement?
TLDR
Evidence is presented that gross structural changes involving the X chromosome are the genetic basis of a significant proportion of radiation-induced mutation to TG resistance in cultured human fibroblasts. Expand
Quantification of chemical mutagenesis in diploid human fibroblasts: induction of azaguanine-resistant mutants by N-methyl-N'-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine.
TLDR
The AGr mutants observed after treatment with MNNG were phenotypically stable and closely resembled prototype AGr cultures derived from humans who have inherited mutant X-chromosomal alleles for HPRT. Expand
A quantitative assay of mutation induction at the hypoxanthine-guanine phosphoribosyl transferase locus in Chinese hamster ovary cells (CHO/HGPRT system): development and definition of the system.
TLDR
The data demonstrate that more than 98% of the mutant clones isolated by this selection procedure contain altered HGPRTase activity, and the CHO/HGPRT system shows the specificity necessary for a specific gene locus mutational assay. Expand
Chemical mutagenesis of mammalian cells can be quantified
TLDR
It is shown here that quantitative dosimetry of chemical mutagenesis can be studied in a mammalian cell culture system, which will allow not only studies of the mechanisms of chemical Mutagenesis, but also an estimate of the genetic hazard of chemical agents in the environment. Expand
